Throughout the 253 picks of the 2012 NFL draft, teams will be drafting who they think is the best player available on the draft board.
This is what the general prospect pool should look like for the draft, with the players at the top being the premier prospects of the 2012 draft class.
A brief description of each prospect is included.
Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford
Throughout the 253 picks of the 2012 NFL draft, teams will be drafting who they think is the best player available on the draft board.
Matt Kalil, OT, USC
1. Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford
Luck is a complete quarterback prospect who should be an NFL star and franchise quarterback for many years to come. Luck has a great physical skill set and he is pro-ready, a great decision-maker and consistently accurate. He will be the No. 1 overall pick and deservedly so.
2. Matt Kalil, OT, USC
Kalil is an elite left tackle prospect with the talent to be a perennial All-Pro. Kalil has everything an NFL team should look for in a left tackle: ideal size, terrific footwork, great strength, and terrific anchoring and blocking techniques.
3. Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor
Emerged in his junior season as a franchise quarterback prospect who would go No. 1 overall in most draft classes. He is known for his tremendous athleticism, but he is also a tremendous pocket-passer with a very strong arm, downfield accuracy, terrific pocket presence and intangibles. Griffin has the skill set to be a star NFL quarterback.
Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU
4. Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU
Best pure cover cornerback in this class, and should be a true No. 1 shutdown sideline corner. An athletic, physical and instinctive cornerback who has the skill to match up with any wide receiver and immediately start as a playmaker in an NFL secondary.
5. Courtney Upshaw, OLB, Alabama
Hybrid pass-rushing linebacker who consistently finds a way to come up with big plays. Best suited to play outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense, but has the versatility to play any linebacker position as well as 4-3 defensive end. Not an elite athlete, but a very instinctive and productive player who should continue to be a playmaker as both a pass-rusher and run-stopper in NFL.
6. Luke Kuechly, ILB, Boston College
Tremendously productive middle linebacker in college who led the NCAA in tackles each of the past two seasons; he should bring that productivity to the NFL. Very instinctive, always around the football and rarely misses tackles. Consistent player who can step in and make an impact right away.
7. Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama
Very talented running back who dominated SEC defenses and possesses a tremendous combination of size, speed and power. Runs too upright, but is a physical back with the ability to beat defenders by running through them and making them miss.
8. Melvin Ingram, DE/OLB, South Carolina
Undersized for a defensive end at only 6’2’’, but a very explosive athlete at the line of scrimmage. Best fit would be as an outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense, but has the talent to make up for his size deficiency and succeed as a down lineman. Best skill is his ability is to get into the backfield and pursue the quarterback, but he is also physical against the run.
9. Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State
Legitimate No. 1 wideout and downfield deep threat. Does not have elite speed, but is a good athlete with great size, strength, hands and route-running ability. Not a lateral athlete who will make cornerbacks miss in open space, but is a big-play threat in the open field.
Dre Kirkpatrick, CB, Alabama
10. David DeCastro, G, Stanford
Complete guard prospect who would be ranked higher if he played a more premier position. Very effective as both a pass- and run-blocker with terrific technique, power and footwork. Should be a dominant, All-Pro-caliber guard.
11. Jonathan Martin, OT, Stanford
Very consistent, well-rounded offensive tackle with the skill set to start on either side on the line. Not overpoweringly dominant, but rarely gets beat. Technician, strong run-blocker and consistent pass-protector.
12. Riley Reiff, OT, Iowa
Physical run-blocker and consistent pass-protector with good feet. Former tight end who brings athleticism and upside to the position with the potential to play on either side on the line, although he may be better suited to start at right tackle.
13. Quinton Coples, DE, North Carolina
Very talented defensive end with a great combination of size and athleticism. Coming off of a disappointing senior season, but has the potential to be a dominant player at the line of scrimmage. Best suited to play defensive end in a 4-3. Tough to block when he is on his game.
14. Dre Kirkpatrick, CB, Alabama
Big, physical cornerback. Has great height at 6’2’’ and is a very good tackler. Lacks elite speed, but has the athleticism and size to match up with any wide receiver in man-to-man coverage. Has character concerns following a marijuana-related arrest in January.
15. Fletcher Cox, DT, Mississippi State
Tremendous interior penetrator who has fantastic athleticism for a 298-pound lineman. Projects well as both a 3-technique defensive tackle in a 4-3 defense and a 5-technique defensive end in a 3-4 scheme. Disruptive difference-maker at line of scrimmage.
16. Jerel Worthy, DT, Michigan State
Struggled with inconsistency at Michigan State, but has the potential to be dominant. Strong, powerful and explosive, he's a tremendous run-stopper. Has had flashes of brilliance that could make him a star if he can overcome his questionable motor and work ethic.
17. Cordy Glenn, G/OT, Georgia
Massive 346-pound offensive lineman with great strength and versatility. Lacks the fluid footwork to play left tackle, but a great athlete for his size. Could be a great fit at either guard position or at right tackle.
18. Dontari Poe, NT, Memphis
The best nose tackle prospect in this draft class by far. A raw project who did not have great productivity at Memphis, but has displayed the ability to be dominant. Has an elite combination of size, strength and athleticism. Could play 1-technique defensive tackle in a 4-3 scheme, but best suited to play nose tackle in a three-man front.
19. Stephon Gilmore, CB, South Carolina
Well-rounded, athletic cornerback who was productive in the SEC. Very solid cover corner who is a athletic with great size and ball skills. Not a lockdown defender, but a capable starter as a sideline corner.
Mark Barron, SS, Alabama
20. Dont’a Hightower, ILB, Alabama
Big, athletic playmaker at middle linebacker. Very good run-stopper, big hitter and moves well in space. Best fit to play in a 3-4 defense, but could fit as a 4-3 middle linebacker as well. Has had problems with injuries at Alabama.
21. Mark Barron, SS, Alabama
Easily the top safety prospect in the draft class. Rangy athlete, very good in run support, hard hitter and great size for a strong safety. Not terrific in coverage, but an effective playmaker in the secondary.
22. Alshon Jeffery, WR, South Carolina
Big wide receiver who could emerge as the top playmaker at the position from this draft class. Productivity dipped sharply in his junior season, but he is a very skilled downfield receiver. Has great size, strength and hands. Lacks elite speed, but has enough athleticism to complement his other traits and make him a tough receiver to defend.
23. Nick Perry, DE/OLB, USC
Raw player whose productivity never matched his potential at USC, but is a very talented pass-rusher with a tremendous combination of athleticism and size. Has an explosive burst, is strong and has very good pass-rush technique. Needs work as a run-defender. Best suited to play defensive end in a 4-3 scheme, but could play outside linebacker in a 3-4 as well.
24. Whitney Mercilus, DE/OLB, Illinois
One-year wonder at Illinois who emerged from reserve to NCAA sacks leader in one season. Very talented pass-rusher with an explosive burst at the line of scrimmage. Good fit to play as either a 4-3 defensive end or 3-4 outside linebacker.
25. Kendall Wright, WR, Baylor
Smaller but explosive wide receiver. Great speed and the lateral quickness to make defenders miss in space. Makes a big impact with his ability to make plays in open field. Good route-runner and natural hands-catcher. Ideally suited to be a slot receiver.
26. Brandon Thompson, DT, Clemson
Big, strong and explosive defensive lineman. Not dominant, but an effective penetrator with the potential to succeed as either as a 5-technique defensive end or a 3-technique defensive tackle.
27. Peter Konz, C, Wisconsin
Best all-around center in the draft class. Has the size of a guard combined with the athleticism, technique and quickness off the snap typical of a center. Consistent center who could also play guard if necessary.
Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame
28. Devon Still, DT, Penn State
Disruptive defensive tackle who is big and powerful. Not a great athlete, but strong and explosive and will be able to get into the backfield to make plays. Nothing that stands out about his game, but should be a good starter as a 4-3 defensive tackle or 3-4 defensive end.
29. Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame
Big, physical wideout with great athleticism and hands. Productive collegiately and has the overall skill set to be a star, but was inconsistent. Has the skill set to be a No. 1 wideout and tremendous deep threat. Has serious character red flags, including three alcohol-related arrests at Notre Dame.
30. Lamar Miller, RB, Miami
Explosive running back with tremendous speed, but also has the size and power to be effective running between the tackles. Great burst out of the backfield and has very good vision to find holes. Struggled with inconsistency but could be an impact player.
31. Stephen Hill, WR, Georgia Tech
Hill only had 28 receptions in his junior season, but averaged nearly 30 yards per reception. Amazing combination of size, athleticism and catching ability gives him the potential to be a superstar. True deep threat who will be able to separate from defenders and use his size to his advantage. Lacks polish as a route-runner, but could be a star if he lives up to his potential.
32. Mike Adams, OT, Ohio State
Has the talent to be a very good NFL left tackle. Tremendous combination of size (6’7’’, 323 pounds) and athletic ability. Has good feet and is both a skilled pass-protector and powerful run-blocker. Has many red flags around his game; character concerns involving Ohio State tattoo scandal and positive marijuana test at combine, and performed very poorly in combine drills.
33. David Wilson, RB, Virginia Tech
Explosive back with tremendous speed and agility. With solid size and strength, Wilson runs hard. Best suited to be a complementary speed back, but can be a game-changer with his elusiveness.
34. Zach Brown, OLB, North Carolina
Tremendous all-around athlete at the linebacker position. Inconsistent player at North Carolina, but is a playmaker with much raw talent. Terrific athlete in space, has good size and does well in coverage. Linebacker who can run like a defensive back, but must become more physical and tough as a tackler.
35. LaMichael James, RB, Oregon
Explosive back with tremendous speed and agility. Too small to run in between the tackles, but will be very dangerous in space. Quick back and very good receiver out of the backfield. Potential offensive game-breaker.
36. Janoris Jenkins, CB, North Alabama
As talented as any cornerback in the draft class, including Claiborne, but has serious character concerns. Was a star defensive back at Florida, but was dismissed from the team following multiple arrests. Has the skill set to be an elite man-to-man cover corner, but a big risk as an early selection.
37. Lavonte David, OLB, Nebraska
Undersized linebacker, but makes up for it with tremendous instincts and athleticism in space. Sound tackler who rarely whiffs, hits hard and is always around the football. Does well dropping back into coverage. Should find success as an NFL weak-side linebacker.
38. Dwayne Allen, TE, Clemson
Best all-around tight end in the draft class. Not a dynamic athlete, but a strong blocker and reliable receiving threat. Not a downfield receiving threat, but can play on any down.
39. Brandon Boykin, CB, Georgia
Very athletic cornerback. Smooth and fluid in coverage, he could be a game-changing playmaker. Undersized, but has very good hips and ball skills. Also a very good punt returner. Ideally fit to play the nickel cornerback position.
40. Nick Toon, WR, Wisconsin
Skilled wide receiver with size, reliable hands, verticality and route-running ability. Lacks elite speed but a capable athlete and downfield receiver. Plagued by injuries and inconsistent play at Wisconsin. Should be a solid No. 2 wideout at next level.
41. Michael Brockers, DT, LSU
Overrated but talented. Big defensive tackle who is an explosive penetrator and skilled interior pass-rusher. Rotational player who is unlikely to be a three-down lineman at next level. Good athlete, but not elite.
42. Jayron Hosley, CB, Virginia Tech
Productivity dropped from his sophomore to junior seasons, but mostly because opposing teams threw the ball his way less often. Fluid coverage and great at making plays on the football with terrific ball skills. Undersized, often overly aggressive and a poor tackler.
43. Shea McClellin, OLB, Boise State
Skilled, athletic pass-rushing outside linebacker who is a similar prospect to Brooks Reed from the 2011 draft. Did not have great productivity in college, but made his presence felt upon games. Great get-off at line of scrimmage and very good at tracking down runners in space. Too small to play defensive end, but ideal fit to play outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense. High-motor player.
Brandon Weeden, QB, Oklahoma State
44. Chase Minnifield, CB, Virginia
Solid all-around cornerback with very good length, Minnifield is smooth and disciplined. Did not put up great numbers, but teams often did not throw his way. Very good instincts and solid tackler. Stock is falling due to injury concerns following microfracture knee surgery.
45. Kelechi Osemele, G, Iowa State
Massive offensive lineman who was a very good left tackle at Iowa State, but lacks the feet to play the position in NFL. Will kick inside to guard and should be effective. Strong, powerful run-blocker and has the athleticism to pass block as a guard.
46. Vinny Curry, DE/OLB, Marshall
Skilled pass-rusher who was very productive at Marshall. Not a great athlete, but has good technique and does a good job of getting into the backfield. Explosive at line of scrimmage. Hybrid pass-rusher who is best suited to play outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme, but could also play defensive end in a 4-3.
47. Brandon Weeden, QB, Oklahoma State
Skilled quarterback—not a typical product of a spread offense. Strong arm and has consistently displayed ability to make NFL throws with downfield accuracy. Mature, intelligent and has good pocket presence. Not a franchise quarterback, but has the ability to start if needed. Limited by his age, as he is already 28 years old.
48. Andre Branch, DE/OLB, Clemson
Very athletic pass-rusher. Struggles as a run-defender and not strong at the point of attack. Best suited as a pass-rushing linebacker in a 3-4 defense. Not a three-down defensive lineman, but could play a situational pass-rushing role in any scheme.
Doug Martin, RB, Boise State
49. Ladarius Green, TE, Louisiana-Lafayette
Very dangerous downfield receiving threat with great combination of height and athletic ability. Lacks strength and not a good in-line blocker. Could be a difference-maker who fits in well with new breed of receiving tight ends.
50. Ben Jones, C, Georgia
Well-rounded, solid center. Nothing special about Jones’ game and he will not dominate, but he was a consistent performer in the SEC. Could struggle with big, explosive defensive tackles, but should be a quality starter at center.
51. Doug Martin, RB, Boise State
Good athlete, very good receiver out of the backfield, can run in between the tackles, is dangerous in space and is a capable blocker. Has terrific vision and burst, and runs with low center of gravity. Unlikely to be a star, but will be a good addition to a rotation as a well-rounded runner.
52. Kendall Reyes, DT, Connecticut
Explosive interior penetrator with the versatility to be a difference-maker as either a 4-3 defensive tackle or as a 5-technique defensive end in a 3-4 scheme. Combines very good athleticism for his size with a long frame and terrific strength. Did not stand out with his play at Connecticut, but has high upside.
53. Chris Polk, RB, Washington
Strong runner with great vision and good athleticism for a power back. Solid and productive, but never stood out at Washington. Solid addition to a running back rotation for a team looking for a power back.
54. Ryan Tannehill, QB, Texas A&M
Not the franchise quarterback prospect that some think he is, but has potential to be a solid starter. Good arm and comes from a pro-style offense. Struggled with accuracy, was inconsistent and is inexperienced. Very good athlete and has great pocket presence, but needs work with decision-making.
55. Bobby Wagner, OLB, Utah State
Has great instincts and a knack for finding the football and making plays. Consistent tackler who has the speed to track down runners in space, and is good in pass coverage. Not an elite athlete. Was very productive at Utah State. Best suited to play as a 4-3 weak-side linebacker.
56. Shaun Prater, CB, Iowa
Prater’s numbers dropped from his junior to senior seasons, but he was targeted less often. Consistent cover corner who rarely gets beat. Not a big-play corner, but is athletic and physical. Should be a solid No. 2 or nickel cornerback.
57. Nigel Bradham, OLB, Florida State
Playmaking linebacker with great athleticism. Sound tackler and can make plays all over the field. Not a star, but has a well-rounded skill set and potential to be a very solid starter. Best suited to play 4-3 strong-side linebacker, but has the size to play inside in a 3-4.
58. Casey Hayward, CB, Vanderbilt
Very productive cornerback who had 17 pass defenses in each of past two seasons. Does not have great speed or size, but very good ball skills and instincts. Strong tackler and plays with physicality.
59. Harrison Smith, SS, Notre Dame
Well-rounded safety. Sound tackler with very good instincts. Somewhat stiff in pass coverage, but not a liability. Solid but unspectacular athlete. Productive and intelligent player who will be ready to start immediately.
60. Jamell Fleming, CB, Oklahoma
Playmaker in coverage, solid all-around defensive back. Decent athlete but stiff in hips. Very good tackler for a cornerback. Should be a solid addition to an NFL secondary.
61. Alfonzo Dennard, CB, Nebraska
Physical, instinctive cornerback and a sound tackler. Stiff hips and lacks top-end speed, but solid in man-to-man coverage. Faces serious character concerns; he was arrested weekend prior to draft for alleged assault on a police officer (per Eric Olson of Associated Press).
62. Rueben Randle, WR, LSU
Solid downfield receiver with the potential to be a good No. 2 wideout at the next level. Lacks top-end speed, but has good size and decent athleticism. Productive player in SEC, has good hands and is a capable route-runner.
63. Juron Criner, WR, Arizona
Big, strong and physical wideout. Plays with verticality and has natural hands. Has a serious lack of speed and was injury-plagued during his collegiate career. Consistently productive when he was healthy.
64. Sean Spence, ILB, Miami
Very undersized for an inside linebacker, but is an athletic, instinctive playmaker. Solid tackler and effective in coverage. Known for coming up with big plays; good at forcing fumbles.
65. Coby Fleener, TE, Stanford
Has an elite combination of size and speed, standing at 6’6’’ while running a sub-4.5 40-yard dash. Not an effective blocker. Very productive as a receiver at Stanford, but not a dynamic athlete in space. Reliable hands and good verticality.
66. Ryan Broyles, WR, Oklahoma
Very productive receiver at Oklahoma. Has natural hands and is a fantastic route-runner. Solid athlete. Has serious injury concerns coming off of a torn ACL. Should be a productive third receiver at next level.
67. Orson Charles, TE, Georgia
Good receiving tight end, and also a solid blocker. Productive in SEC, but nothing stands out particularly about his game. Has serious red flags: very disappointing performance at combine; DUI arrest in March.
68. Kevin Zeitler, G, Wisconsin
Tough, physical and mauling guard resembles the usual style of Wisconsin guard prospects. AP first-team All-American as a senior. Not dominant, but should be a solid starting right guard at next level.
69. Nick Foles, QB, Arizona
Very good physical attributes, including a strong arm. Struggles with decision-making and poor mechanics. Can be accurate downfield, but is inconsistent. Solid pocket-passer, but not an explosive athlete.
70. Brian Quick, WR, Appalachian State
Very good combination of size and athleticism. Natural hands, good route-runner and quick as his name suggests. Unproven as he comes from the FCS level of competition, but has upside to be a productive No. 2 wideout.
71. Brandon Washington, G, Miami
Big offensive lineman with good frame and very good athleticism for his size. Played left tackle in his junior season, but will kick back inside to play guard. Strong run-blocker and solid pass-blocker. Should be a solid starter.
72. Dwight Jones, WR, North Carolina
Talented receiver who was very productive in each of his last two seasons at North Carolina. Good size and solid athleticism, but lacks top-end speed. Can struggle with drops. Has a character red flag, as he was banned from UNC’s pro day for being dishonest about a party that was held in his name.
Michael Egnew, TE, Missouri
73. Josh Robinson, CB, UCF
Has tremendous speed, and was the fastest player at the scouting combine. Productive cornerback who had 17 pass defenses last season. Lacks fluid hips, inconsistent in coverage, has poor hands and is an inconsistent tackler. High upside.
74. Trumaine Johnson, FS/CB, Montana
Dominant cornerback at the FCS level, but may not be athletic to play the position at the next level. Great size with tackling and coverage ability in middle of field to play safety. A project.
75. Antonio Allen, SS, South Carolina
Productive strong safety in SEC with coverage and tackling ability. Does not have great speed, but a playmaker at the back end of a secondary. Should be able to compete for a starting position and contribute on special teams if he does not start.
76. Aaron Henry, FS, Wisconsin
Well-rounded free safety. Good tackler, covers well and has good ball skills. Short for the position but a good athlete. Productive player in the Big Ten with potential to be an NFL starter.
77. Jarius Wright, WR, Arkansas
Explosive wide receiver with tremendous speed and lateral agility. Very productive in SEC and a big-play threat. Ideally suited to be an NFL slot receiver. Dangerous in space.
78. Kirk Cousins, QB, Michigan State
Solid all-around quarterback. Nothing spectacular about his game, but perfectly suited to be a No. 2 quarterback. Subpar arm strength, but an intelligent decision-maker with good intangibles. A solid all-around pocket-passer and productive in Big Ten. Should pick up an NFL offense quickly and be able to spot start if needed.
79. Michael Egnew, TE, Missouri
Talented receiving threat and very good athlete. Productive receiver for Missouri who will present a downfield receiving threat in the middle of the field. Will not make defenders miss in space. Not a capable in-line blocker.
Isaiah Pead, RB, Cincinnati
80. Jaye Howard, DE, Florida
Talented defensive lineman whose best fit comes as a 5-technique defensive end in a 3-4. Productivity at Florida never lived up to his ability, but he is a big, strong defensive lineman who is solid against the run and a capable pass-rusher. Could start in the right defense.
81. Bernard Pierce, RB, Temple
Powerful, strong running back who was very productive at Temple. Good athlete for a power back. Will be a good complementary back for a team whose feature back is a smaller speed back.
82. Jared Crick, DT/DE, Nebraska
At only 276 pounds, very undersized for a defensive tackle, but lacks athleticism to play defensive end in a 4-3 scheme. Almost exclusively a 3-4 defensive end. Talented player who was productive when on the field at Nebraska, but career was plagued by injuries. Regardless of scheme, should be a rotational player at next level.
83. Nicolas Jean-Baptiste, NT, Baylor
Has upside to be a starting-caliber nose tackle. Big, powerful defensive lineman who could develop into a formidable starter in a three-man front. Was productive in taking over for Phil Taylor as Baylor’s nose tackle in his senior season. Not an explosive athlete and may not be a three-down lineman in NFL, but given importance of nose tackles, worth a good look from 3-4 defensive teams.
84. Chandler Jones, DE/OLB, Syracuse
Long, athletic hybrid pass-rusher. Could fit as either a defensive end in a four-man front as an outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense. Intriguing upside, but not particularly productive in the Big East.
85. Tommy Streeter, WR, Miami
Terrific combination of size and speed. Inconsistent productivity at Miami, but has big upside as a deep threat. His game is raw, but a very intriguing developmental prospect.
86. Keenan Robinson, LB, Texas
Big, athletic and well-rounded playmaker at the linebacker position. Versatile player whose best fits are as a 4-3 outside linebacker or as a 3-4 inside linebacker. Good tackler and good at dropping back in coverage. Not a standout, but should be productive rotational player.
87. Bobby Massie, OT, Mississippi
Long, angular offensive tackle. His game is raw, but has the skill to be a solid NFL right tackle. Good but not great footwork with decent strength. Could project to left tackle, but may not be capable of starting there at next level.
88. Isaiah Pead, RB, Cincinnati
Well-rounded running back. Hard runner who is undersized to run between the tackles, but also has good speed and quickness. Effective receiver out of the backfield, willing blocker. Will be a good addition to a running backs rotation.
89. Markelle Martin, SS, Oklahoma State
Hard-hitting playmaker at safety. Productive at Oklahoma State, but may struggle in coverage at next level with subpar athleticism and stiff hips.
90. Chris Givens, WR, Wake Forest
Productive wide receiver at Wake Forest. Good hands and effective route runner. Very good athlete. Only 6'0" tall, but a solid all-around game. Should be a solid third or fourth receiver at next level.
91. Chris Rainey, WR/RB, Florida
Very dynamic athlete with dangerous speed. 40-yard dash times at combine and pro day were slightly disappointing, but still fast. Played running back at Florida, but with his straight-line speed and ability as a receiver out of the backfield, projects best as an NFL slot receiver. Should also provide value as a kick returner.
92. Brandon Brooks, G, Miami (Ohio)
Massive and very strong guard. Often dominant against MAC competition, and was dominant in Shrine Game. Had very impressive pro day workout. Very powerful as a run-blocker, but footwork needs work. Could emerge as a quality starting guard.
93. Travis Lewis, OLB, Oklahoma
Great talent, but his collegiate career was derailed by injuries. Instinctive playmaker, solid tackler and skilled in coverage. Subpar athlete for an NFL linebacker. Durability concerns hurt his stock.
94. Tony Bergstrom, G/OT, Utah
Very productive left tackle at Utah who should kick inside to guard at next level. Solid all-around blocker, but does not have great feet and will not dominate. Best suited to be a three-position backup at both guard spots and right tackle.
95. James Brown, G, Troy
Talented offensive lineman who has upside as an NFL guard. Good technician with very good feet for his size. Long arms are an advantage. Has potential to start, and should at least provide solid depth.
96. Marvin McNutt, WR, Iowa
Productive but inconsistent at Iowa. Has good size, runs good routes and has reliable hands. Lacks top-end speed and struggles to separate downfield. Sometimes appears as though he is not going full speed. Should be a solid fourth receiver in NFL.
97. Olivier Vernon, DE/OLB, Miami
Very much a project, but has upside as a pass-rusher. Athletic edge-rusher with good burst off the line of scrimmage. Missed six games in his junior season due to suspension for accepting improper benefits.
98. Mike Martin, DT, Michigan
Powerful and strong defensive tackle. Could be looked at as a nose tackle, but undersized for that position. Good run-stopper who projects well as a 1-technique in a 4-3 scheme.
99. Joe Adams, WR, Arkansas
Dynamic athlete with terrific lateral quickness, he has the ability to make defenders miss. Known best for his punt return ability; not consistently productive as a wide receiver at Arkansas. Stock hurt by disappointing 40-yard dash times at combine and pro day, with speed viewed as an asset for him.
100. Hebron Fangupo, DT, Brigham Young
Big, strong player who will be looked at as a potential nose tackle in a three-man front. Short for the position at 6’1’’. Great strength and power, but not an explosive athlete. Best suited to be a second-string nose tackle for a 3-4 team.
101. Dwight Bentley, CB, Louisiana-Lafayette
Instinctive cornerback with athleticism and good ball skills. Inconsistent as a tackler, sometimes overly aggressive, but is effective in coverage. Very thin frame. Best suited to be a nickel or dime cornerback.
102. Mohamed Sanu, WR, Rutgers
Exceptional route-runner and uses that skill to get open. Natural hands-catcher. Lacks speed—not a dangerous player in space. Possession receiver who should be a solid No. 4 receiver in NFL.
103. Andrew Datko, OT, Florida State
Talented left tackle with the potential to develop into a starter, but has serious injury concerns, having missed the better part of the last two seasons with shoulder injuries. Were it not for injuries, Datko would be a second-round talent.
104. Brandon Mosley, OT/G, Auburn
Very solid right tackle who stepped up for Auburn in his senior season. Has the potential to start on the right side, but could also be a three-position backup with the versatility to line up at guard.
105. Tank Carder, OLB, TCU
Two-time Mountain West Defensive Player of the Year who is a playmaker at the linebacker position. Undersized but a solid athlete. Not a big hitter, but rarely misses tackles. Effective at dropping back in coverage. Should be a rotational linebacker and special teams standout.
106. Rishard Matthews, WR, Nevada
Talented receiver who was productive at Nevada. Vertical receiver, skilled route-runner and has very good hands. Subpar speed. Should be a solid No. 4 wideout in NFL.
107. George Iloka, FS, Boise State
Tremendous combination of size and athleticism for a free safety. Sound tackler and solid in coverage. Not a consistent playmaker, productivity never lived up to potential. Has high upside, but could end up a poor man’s Taylor Mays.
108. A.J. Jenkins, WR, Illinois
Solid all-around receiver. Very good hands and good route-runner. Productive at Illinois in his senior season. Should be a solid No. 4 receiver.
109. Levy Adcock, OT, Oklahoma State
Has the feet of a left tackle, but needs to get stronger. Effective pass-protector, but must improve as a run-blocker. Developmental prospect who could develop into a starting left tackle down the line.
110. Nate Potter, OT, Boise State
Has huge upside as a big, athletic offensive lineman, but is not a dominant blocker. Subpar strength and must improve as a run-blocker. Has the potential to be a starting offensive tackle, but should start out as a backup.
111. Marcus Forston, DT, Miami
Forston showed the potential to be dominant when he was on the field, but his career was injury-plagued. He is coming off of a season-ending knee injury. Explosive penetrator, but does not stand out with strength or athleticism.
112. Cam Johnson, DE, Virginia
Solid all-around defensive end, but his game does not stand out. Solid pass-rusher, but not particularly explosive. Solid against the run and tackles well. Should be a solid rotational defensive end in a 4-3 scheme.
113. Ronnie Hillman, RB, San Diego State
Short back, but has speed and quickness. Only played two seasons at San Diego State before declaring as a redshirt sophomore, but was very productive. Good receiver out of the backfield. Should be a good rotational back.
114. Mychal Kendricks, ILB, California
Very undersized for the middle linebacker position, but a tremendous athlete. Productive at California. Has huge upside as an athletic specimen. Tackles well, but could struggle against bigger running backs, at only 5’11’’.
Brock Osweiler, QB, Arizona State
115. T.Y. Hilton, WR, Florida International
Dynamic slot receiver and kick/punt returner. Small but has dynamic speed and quickness. Needs work as a receiver, but has immediate value as returner.
116. Ronnell Lewis, OLB, Oklahoma
Gifted athlete and talented pass-rusher, but has serious red flags. Questionable maturity and work ethic, as he was suspended last three games of last season for academic reasons. Hard-hitting tackler. Fits almost exclusively as a 3-4 outside linebacker.
117. Brock Osweiler, QB, Arizona State
Physical prototype for the quarterback position with a strong arm. Struggles with decision-making, inconsistent with accuracy and mistake-prone. Has the upside to develop into a starting-caliber quarterback, but has significant flaws in his game.
118. Bruce Irvin, OLB/DE, West Virginia
Superb athlete and very talented pass-rusher who ranked second in NCAA in sacks in 2010. Exclusively a situational pass-rusher, and weak against run. Hybrid best suited to line up as an outside linebacker in a 3-4, but could play situationally as a 4-3 defensive end. Has serious character concerns, highlighted by a destruction of property arrest in March.
119. Jerry Franklin, ILB, Arkansas
Productive middle linebacker in the SEC who is an instinctive player and consistent tackler. Nothing spectacular about his game, but he should be a solid backup inside linebacker.
120. Robert Turbin, RB, Utah State
Intriguing running back prospect. Emerged in a very strong junior season at Utah State, after which he declared. Big, powerful running back with great athleticism for his size. Tremendous build. Not a feature back, but could be quite productive at next level.
121. Derek Wolfe, DT/DE, Cincinnati
Productive defensive lineman at Cincinnati who has an intriguing combination of size and athleticism. Undersized defensive tackle, but projects well to playing the 5-technique defensive end position. Could be a disruptive player and potentially develop into a starter at that position on a three-man front.
122. Marvin Jones, WR, California
Solid all-around wide receiver with intriguing combination of size and speed, and was productive at California. Great hands and good route-runner. Nothing stands out about his game, but he should be a solid receiver at next level.
123. David Molk, C, Michigan
Very solid all-around center. Won the Rimington Trophy and was a consensus All-American in his senior season. Undersized but a decent athlete for the position and strong. Not dominant, but could develop into a starter or be a solid backup.
124. Jonathan Massaquoi, OLB/DE, Troy
Decent hybrid pass-rusher, but numbers dipped sharply as blockers put more attention on him last season. Good technique and can get into backfield, but not an explosive athlete. Best suited to play outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme. Rotational player.
125. Zebrie Sanders, OT, Florida State
Big right tackle with good feet. Has looked very good at times, but is highly inconsistent. Not dominant. Best suited to be a backup right tackle at next level.
126. Emmanuel Acho, OLB, Texas
Acho was very productive at Texas, but there is nothing special about his game. Solid all-around linebacker who tackles well and can cover, but will be a backup linebacker and special teams player at next level.
127. Audie Cole, ILB, North Carolina State
Has an impressive combination of size and athleticism for an inside linebacker, but he did not stand out at North Carolina State. Inconsistent tackler. Rotational player at next level.
128. Alameda Ta’amu, DT, Washington
Massive defensive tackle, but may lack the core strength to play nose tackle. Can be disruptive, but was not consistently productive at Washington. Likely a backup, and best suited to play 1-technique defensive tackle in four-man front.
129. Josh Chapman, DT, Alabama
Strong, powerful defensive tackle. Has potential to play nose tackle, but is undersized for that position. Does not make much impact on the stat sheet, but is a solid run-stuffer in the middle of a defensive front.
130. Vick Ballard, RB, Mississippi State
Solid power back who was productive in the SEC. Decent but unspectacular speed. Should be a solid rotational back.
131. Eric Page, WR, Toledo

132. Julian Miller, DE/OLB, West Virginia
Undersized but well-rounded defensive end. Dominant in Shrine Game. Skilled pass-rusher who is also solid against the run. Best suited to play defensive end in four-man front, but has athleticism to play outside linebacker in 3-4 scheme. Should be a solid rotational player.
133. Frank Alexander, DE/OLB, Oklahoma
Very productive defensive end at Oklahoma who could be a very solid rotational player as a hybrid pass-rusher at next level. Undersized for defensive end, but could play in a situational role while also having potential as an outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense. Instinctive, consistent player who tackles well.
134. Terrell Manning, OLB, NC State
Undersized but productive linebacker. Solid athlete, consistent tackler and does well with dropping back into coverage. Rotational player at next level.
135. Kheeston Randall, DT/DE, Texas
Shows potential as a disruptive defensive lineman, but never lived up to his potential at Texas. Solid penetrator, but inconsistent performer. Has upside, especially as a 5-technique defensive end in a 3-4 scheme. Likely rotational player.
136. Cordarro Law, DE, Southern Mississippi
Does not fit measurable prototypes, but was very productive at Southern Miss. Disruptive player who often dominated the line of scrimmage. Lacks ideal athleticism to play defensive end, but could be a very solid rotational player.
137. Ryan Miller, G/OT, Colorado
Miller is a massive offensive lineman with a terrific combination of size and athleticism. Raw player who was not dominant, but has potential at both guard and right tackle. Likely to be a three-position backup, but could develop into a starter.
138. Mitchell Schwartz, OT, California
Solid all-around right tackle prospect. Not dominant, and has limited positional versatility, but could emerge as a starter on the right side.
139. Amini Silatolu, G, Midwestern State
Was dominant as a Division II player. Has high upside, but is very much an unproven project. Could emerge as a starter, but he is a difficult player to evaluate.
Cyrus Gray, RB, Texas A&M
140. James-Michael Johnson, ILB, Nevada
Instinctive linebacker and sound tackler. Undersized for the position and not a spectacular athlete. Should be a solid depth player and special teams contributor.
141. Cyrus Gray, RB, Texas A&M
Quick, speedy running back. Should have a future as a situational third-down back. Good receiver out of the backfield. Coming off of a season-ending shoulder injury.
142. Josh Norman, CB, Coastal Carolina
Productive cornerback at FCS level who emerged with a strong showing at the Shrine Game. Instinctive, good size, sound tackler. Quick, but long speed is a major concern. Unproven coming from a lower level of competition.
143. Senio Kelemete, G, Washington
Solid left tackle at Washington who will kick inside at next level. Not much of an athlete and lacks strength. Good technique as a blocker, but may never be starting-caliber.
144. Brandon Lindsey, DE/OLB, Pittsburgh
Productive pass-rusher in college, but undersized for a 4-3 defensive end and may lack the athleticism to be a hybrid pass-rusher as a 3-4 outside linebacker. Solid technician, but subpar lateral athlete.
145. Brett Roy, DE/DT, Nevada
Very productive at Nevada, but a ‘tweener who does fit any position particularly well. Small for a defensive tackle, but lacks the athleticism of a defensive end. Disruptive at line of scrimmage, but lack of size could be a problem. Rotational player and special teams contributor.
146. Jordan White, WR, Western Michigan
Very productive receiver who led NCAA in receptions and receiving yards last season. Very slow, especially for a receiver shorter than 6'0". Has terrific hands and good verticality. Should be a solid possession receiver and is a No. 4 receiver.
147. Tramain Thomas, FS, Arkansas
Playmaking safety. Short for the position, but athletic, instinctive, has tremendous ball skills and is a solid tackler. Could potentially develop into a starter, but most likely a third safety and special teams contributor.
148. Matt Daniels, SS, Duke
Very intriguing prospect. Big, hard-hitting safety who tackles well, while also having great speed and ball skills. Needs some work in coverage, but has high upside.
149. Russell Wilson, QB, Wisconsin
Athletic quarterback with great intangibles. Short and has subpar arm strength, but is a smart quarterback who can make plays as a dual-threat.
150. Billy Winn, DE/DT, Boise State
Has the ability to be a disruptive force on the defensive line, but his game is much too inconsistent. Winn lacks strength and has a questionable motor. Stock really dropped over the course of a disappointing senior season.
151. Trevin Wade, CB, Arizona
Small cornerback with solid instincts and playmaking ability. Poor tackler and inconsistent in coverage. Has potential as a dime cornerback.
152. Jeff Fuller, WR, Texas A&M
Big receiver who lacks athleticism. Struggles to get off of the line and separate. Has shown ability to make tough catches, but sometimes struggles with drops. Stock dropped considerably in poor senior season.
153. Mike Brewster, C, Ohio State
Solid all-around center, but far from dominant. Play regressed over the course of his career at Ohio State. Good run-blocker, but struggles as an interior pass-protector. Needs to improve as a snapper.
154. Matt McCants, OT, UAB
Raw talent with good size but subpar athleticism. Was an All-Conference USA first-team selection, but he has major development in front of him to be successful at the next level.
155. Ryan Van Bergen, DE, Michigan
Solid pass-rusher who is also strong against the run. Not an explosive athlete, but a well-rounded player who should make for a solid backup defensive end at the next level.
156. Kyle Wilber, OLB, Wake Forest
Skilled pass-rushing outside linebacker who is best suited to line up in a 3-4 defense. Needs to add bulk, but a good lateral athlete who can make plays in space. Should be a solid situational player.
157. Jamie Blatnick, DE/OLB, Oklahoma State
Athletic playmaker. Skilled pass-rusher, and has the versatility to drop back to outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense. Needs work as a run-defender. Should be a solid situational player.

Tandy is an instinctive cornerback with solid ball skills and playmaking ability. Sometimes overaggressive. Capable but unspectacular athlete.
159. Danny Trevathan, OLB, Kentucky
Productive linebacker in the SEC. Undersized and unspectacular athlete, but instinctive, sound tackler and drops back into coverage well. Should provide solid depth and be a special teams contributor.
160. Sammy Brown, OLB, Houston
Led NCAA last season with a tremendous 30 tackles for loss, which says a lot about his ability to get into the backfield and make plays. Needs to add bulk and is not a tremendous athlete, but should be able to contribute as a situational pass-rusher and special teams player.
161. Adrian Robinson, OLB/DE, Temple
Talented edge-rusher who showed flashes of brilliance, but play was inconsistent. Good athlete and a solid tackler in space. Not a three-down lineman, but should be a solid rotational player at next level. Best suited to play outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme.
162. Vontaze Burfict, ILB, Arizona State
Very talented inside linebacker who was once a top prospect, but has dropped sharply due to character and work ethic concerns. Hard-hitting, instinctive playmaker at linebacker position. Playing time dropped significantly late in junior season due to failure to get along with coaches. Looked very out of shape at combine and pro day. Poor attitude and lacks maturity.
163. Terrance Ganaway, RB, Baylor
Good between-the-tackles runner. Big and powerful, but lacks speed. A short-yardage and goal-line situational runner at next level.
164. Jeff Allen, G/OT, Illinois
Decent offensive line prospect whose performance exceeded expectations at Senior Bowl. Played left tackle at Illinois, but lacks the footwork to play position at next level. Best suited to kick inside to guard, likely three-position backup who could also play right tackle.
Brandon Taylor, SS, LSU
165. Philip Blake, C, Baylor
Solid all-around center with good size and quickness off the snap. Best suited to be a three-position backup who could also play guard.
166. Brandon Taylor, SS, LSU
Productive strong safety in a loaded secondary at LSU. Strong tackler in run support. Subpar athlete who may not be able to cover at the next level. Best suited to be backup and special teams player.
167. Delano Howell, SS, Stanford
Instinctive playmaking safety, but speed is a major concern. Has good ball skills, but will struggle in coverage at next level.
168. Robert Blanton, FS/CB, Notre Dame
Instinctive and physical defensive back. Skilled cover corner at Notre Dame, but lacks the speed to play cornerback at next level. Has the physical tools to convert to safety, but is a project who may be best suited for special teams.
169. Matt Conrath, DE, Virginia
Disruptive collegiate defensive tackle. Has great height. Combination of build and quickness gives him potential as a defensive end. Would fit best as a 5-technique defensive end in 3-4 scheme, and should be situational player.
170. Jake Bequette, DE, Arkansas
Solid defensive end, but lacks the athleticism to be an impact pass-rusher at next level. Talented player, but inconsistent productivity in college. Should be a rotational player or special teams contributor.
171. Malik Jackson, DE, Tennessee
Solid collegiate defensive end, but nothing special about his game. Lacks the athleticism to be an impact pass-rusher. Rotational player and special-teamer.
172. Trevor Guyton, DE, California
Has good size for a defensive end, but collegiate productivity was inconsistent and he is not an explosive athlete. Has potential as a 5-technique defensive end.
173. B.J. Cunningham, WR, Michigan State
Skilled wide receiver. Has good hands, solid route-runner and good lateral quickness. Nothing that stands out about his game, but should be a solid No. 4 receiver and special teams contributor.
174. Moe Petrus, C, Connecticut
Consistent center who never missed a start over four years at Connecticut. Could also kick over to guard. Not dominant enough to be starting-caliber, but a solid three-position backup.
175. Janzen Jackson, FS, McNeese State
Hard-hitting, athletic safety. Has great talent, but serious character issues: He was dismissed from Tennessee for failed drug tests. Overly aggressive as a defender and an inconsistent tackler. Has the talent to start, but may never come close to reaching his potential.
176. Kellen Moore, QB, Boise State
All-time winningest quarterback in NCAA history, but lack of size and a weak arm are major deficiencies in his game. Accurate passer, intelligent, great decision-maker and great leader. Would make a very good backup quarterback with his ability to pick up a system quickly.
177. William Vlachos, C, Alabama
Very good center for Alabama in the SEC, but may not have the strength or quickness to succeed at next level. Short for the position, and he was exposed with a bad week at Senior Bowl. Smart leader who is a good technician.
DeVier Posey, WR, Ohio State
178. Ron Brooks, CB, LSU
Situational cornerback at LSU, but has high upside as a nickel or dime cornerback in NFL. Small defensive back, but tremendous athlete and good in nickel coverage. Playmaking corner with good ball skills.
179. DeVier Posey, WR, Ohio State
Very talented wideout, but only played in three games last season, having been suspended for the first 10. Has the potential to be a legitimate No. 2 wideout at next level, but must overcome character issues.
180. Evan Rodriguez, HB, Temple
Quality H-back who is an effective run-blocker and has reliable hands. Short for a tight end, but could play a Chris Cooley-like role for a team.
181. Coryell Judie, CB, Texas A&M
Gifted athlete, but very inconsistent in coverage. Big-play threat whenever the ball is in his hands, but he is overaggressive and often gives up big plays. Not a sound tackler. Situational corner and punt returner at next level.
182. T.J. Graham, WR, North Carolina State
Not a great wide receiver, but has great speed and agility. Athleticism gives him upside, and he will make a quality return specialist.
183. Gerell Robinson, WR, Arizona State
Big wide receiver who was a big-play threat in college. Lacks the speed to separate at next level, but is strong and has good hands.
184. Isaiah Frey, CB, Nevada
Very solid cover cornerback who was productive and consistent for Nevada. Good athlete, physical and has good ball skills. May not be a difference-maker at next level, but should at least make it on special teams.
185. Nelson Rosario, WR, UCLA
Rosario has tremendous size and the ability to make tremendous catches. Lacks speed, but has a terrific vertical game. Should be a good red-zone threat at next level.
186. Junior Hemingway, WR, Michigan
Physical receiver who excels at making tough catches in traffic. Struggles to separate, but should be a solid No. 4 possession receiver.
187. DeQuan Menzie, CB, Alabama
Quality cover corner who tackles well. However, he is much too slow to succeed at the position at the next level and has stiff hips. Most likely reserved to special teams.
188. Leonard Johnson, CB, Iowa State
Physical cover corner, but short and has a serious lack of speed. Good tackler but stiff in hips. Situational player who will have to make a living on special teams.
189. DaJohn Harris, DT, USC
Has upside as a defensive tackle, but not particularly productive at USC. Can be disruptive, but not a particularly explosive athlete.
190. Markus Zusevics, OT, Iowa
Very solid right tackle at Iowa, but not good enough to start at the position and lacks positional versatility. Could make it as a three-position backup with the run-blocking talent to play guard.
191. Dan Herron, RB, Ohio State
Solid, shifty running back who also has the size and physical toughness to run between the tackles. Nothing spectacular about his game and will not be an impact runner.
192. Brian Linthicum, TE, Michigan State
Big tight end with reliable hands, and is a quality in-line blocker. Not much of a threat as a receiver, but is well-rounded player who should have in short-yardage and goal-line packages.
193. Mike Daniels, DE, Iowa
Short and small for a defensive tackle, but is quick and disruptive at the line of scrimmage. Good playmaker up front who should be able to overcome lack of size to be a situational player on a defensive line.
194. Blake DeChristopher, OT, Virginia Tech
Terrific right tackle at Virginia Tech who could play the position in NFL. Does not have great feet, but is a solid technician and strong run-blocker.
195. Jacquies Smith, OLB, Missouri
Solid hybrid pass-rusher. Too small to play defensive end, so almost exclusively fits as an outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense. Situational pass-rusher in the right system.
196. Brandon Hardin, FS, Oregon State
Physical defensive back with safety size but plays like a cornerback. Very athletic for a safety and a sound tackler. Missed all of last season due to shoulder surgery.
197. Matt Reynolds, G, Brigham Young
Tough and physical run-blocker, but really struggles in pass blocking. Reliable and experienced left tackle at BYU, but will have to kick inside to guard.
198. Cliff Harris, CB, Oregon
As a sophomore, Harris was one of the nation’s most explosive players. A playmaking defensive back with great ball skills and a big-play threat off interceptions and as a punt returner. However, Harris was dismissed from Oregon last season, and performed very poorly at the combine. Natural athlete and big talent, but major wild card.
199. Desmond Marrow, CB, Toledo
Big, physical cornerback who was very productive at Toledo. Lacks long speed, but has potential as cornerback depth and on special teams.
200. Ryan Steed, CB, Furman
Big playmaking cornerback at FCS level, but is very slow for an NFL cornerback. May not be able to transition with a major increase in competition.
201. Tauren Poole, RB, Tennessee
Tough runner who had solid productivity in SEC. Physical between the tackles with decent speed, but nothing that stands out about his game.
Tyrone Crawford, DE/OLB, Boise State
202. Charles Brown, CB, North Carolina
Tough, instinctive, physical cornerback who tackles well. Speed and inconsistency in coverage are concerns.
203. Demario Davis, OLB, Arkansas State
Undersized linebacker who was not tremendously productive in the Sun Belt, but is a very rangy athlete with upside. Should do very well on special teams.
204. Tyrone Crawford, DE/OLB, Boise State
Quality hybrid pass-rusher who has been productive for Boise State. Does not stand out athletically, but has versatility to play situationally as a 4-3 defensive end or 3-4 outside linebacker.
205. Noah Keller, ILB, Ohio
Very solid middle linebacker. Sound tackler who came back strong after missing an entire season due to injury. Should be a solid backup middle linebacker and special-teamer.
206. George Bryan, TE, North Carolina State
Big tight end and excellent blocker. Lacks the athleticism to be a receiving threat.
207. Josh Kaddu, OLB, Oregon
Solid playmaker as a linebacker, but plays like a 3-4 outside linebacker yet is too small to play in that spot. Best suited to play special teams at the next level.
208. Coty Sensabaugh, CB, Clemson
Rangy, instinctive and physical cornerback. Not exceptional in coverage, but is athletic. Will have to excel on special teams, but has development potential.
209. Eddie Whitley, FS, Virginia Tech
Solid playmaker at the free safety position. His game does not stand out, but is an instinctive tackler who is decent in coverage. Can provide depth and play special teams.
210. Drake Dunsmore, HB, Northwestern
Undersized tight end, but has reliable hands and is good in-line blocker. Has potential as an H-back and special teams player.
211. Emil Igwenagu, HB, Massachusetts

Tall safety who tackles well. Not a great athlete, but instinctive and very good in run support. Should be a backup safety and very good special teams player.
213. Robert Golden, FS, Arizona
Instinctive defensive back with good ball skills. Not good enough in coverage for a cornerback, but small for a safety. Playmaker with potential, but will have to make it on special teams.
214. Ryan Lindley, QB, San Diego State
Has tremendous physical tools and the ability to make NFL throws, but has major problems with accuracy and decision-making. Worth a late draft pick as a developmental project.
215. Trenton Robinson, SS, Michigan State
Instinctive safety who tackles soundly. Undersized but a decent athlete. Struggles in pass coverage and has stiff hips. Best suited to play special teams.
216. Donnie Fletcher, FS, Boston College
Instinctive defensive back with good ball skills, but too stiff-hipped to play cornerback at next level. Solid tackler with the size to play safety. Could be a ‘tweener with no true position, but has special teams potential.
217. Shawn Loiseau, ILB, Merrimack
Instinctive, hard-hitting linebacker who was a star in Division II. Not a tremendously gifted athlete, but has a great motor. Has the makeup of an excellent special teams player.
218. Tom Compton, OT, South Dakota
FCS All-American who has a very good blend of size and athleticism. His game needs polish as he makes a big leap in competition, but he is a good developmental prospect.
219. Patrick Edwards, WR, Houston
Receiver with great quickness and route-running ability. Very small and quick but not fast. Led nation with 25 receiving plays of more than 25 yards last season, but will be more of an intermediate receiving threat at next level.
220. Josh Cooper, WR, Oklahoma State
Reminiscent of Wes Welker. Small receiver but has strong hands and quickness and is a good route-runner. Lacks long speed and strength, but could make it in the league.
221. Will Blackwell, G, LSU
Very solid guard who was an AP second-team All-American last season. Does not have great feet, but is strong and a good technician. Better than he gets credit for.
Devon Wylie, WR, Fresno State
222. Devon Wylie, WR, Fresno State
Not a great receiver, but is a dynamic athlete with great speed and lateral agility, and a very good punt returner. Very small and was injury-plagued throughout his collegiate career.
223. Greg Childs, WR, Arkansas
Coming off of a torn patella tendon, Childs’ production dropped sharply in his senior season, as he appeared to lose a step. Before that, he was a very skilled receiver. Has great size and hands, and has shown signs of his old self in pre-draft workouts. Could be a late-round steal.
224. Shawn Powell, P, Fresno State
Big punter with a strong leg. Led the nation with 47.04 yards per punt last season.
225. Scott Wedige, C, Northern Illinois
Solid center who had a strong career for Northern Illinois. Should be a solid backup in NFL. Not dominant and subpar pass-blocker, but good run-blocker and snapper.
226. Vince Browne, DE/OLB, Northwestern
Production dropped sharply from his junior to senior season, but has shown the ability to be a very solid hybrid pass-rusher. Should be able to play special teams.
227. Kevin Koger, TE, Michigan
Big, physical tight end who blocks well and has reliable hands. Lacks the speed to be a downfield receiving threat, but has potential as a blocker and special-teams player.
228. Edwin Baker, RB, Michigan State

229. Bryan Anger, P, California
Strong-legged punter who gets great hang time. May have earned himself a spot in the draft with a great Shrine Game showing. Only ranked 14th in the nation in punting average last season.
230. Bobby Rainey, RB, Western Kentucky
Workhorse running back who has been among the Top 5 runners in the nation each of the past two seasons. Small back who has already taken on a heavy workload. Not particularly powerful or exceptionally athletic. Good receiver out of the backfield.
231. Lennon Creer, RB, Louisiana Tech
Impressive performances at Shrine Game and Senior Bowl could get him drafted after a decent, but unspectacular career as a runner in the WAC. Has good size and power, but a serious lack of speed.
232. Justin Bethel, CB, Presbyterian
Intriguing small-school defensive-back prospect. Good combination of size and athleticism, and was very impressive in combine drills. Has the versatility to play either cornerback or safety and should excel on special teams.
233. Keshawn Martin, WR, Michigan State
Solid all-around receiver. On the small side, but a great athlete. Good hands and quality route-runner. Will have to make it on special teams.
234. Jack Crawford, DE, Penn State
Big, talented defensive end. Arrested in drug bust in March, which raised serious character concerns. Could be a solid situational defensive end who is a good run-stopper, but must overcome off-field issues.
235. B.J. Coleman, QB, Chattanooga
Coleman had problems with accuracy and consistency even at the FCS level, but has good physical tools. Has potential as a developmental project quarterback.
236. Kelcie McCray, SS, Arkansas State
Talented strong safety, but not exactly a star in the Sun Belt. Most likely will have to make it on special teams and provide depth.
237. Chandler Harnish, QB, Northern Illinois

238. Travis Benjamin, WR, Miami

239. Najee Goode, ILB, West Virginia
Solid athlete and instinctive, sound tackler. May lack the size and strength to be more than a special teamer at next level.
240. Omar Bolden, CB, Arizona State
Athletic playmaker who is fluid in coverage. Missed entire 2011 season due to a torn ACL. Shaky tackler. Has potential as a dime cornerback, but most likely will specialize on special teams.
241. Greg McCoy, CB, TCU
Instinctive cornerback who tackles well and has very good athleticism. Also a good punt returner. Small and inconsistent in coverage, and will struggle to match up with big, outside NFL receivers. Should make it on special-teams play and return ability.
242. Dominique Hamilton, DT, Missouri
Big, stout defensive tackle, but sluggishly slow. Strong and powerful, but may not be explosive enough to be an impact player at next level.
243. Donte Paige-Moss, DE/OLB, North Carolina
Athletic hybrid pass-rusher with big upside, but playing time dropped significantly in his junior season, and he has a torn ACL. Also has a very questionable attitude. Big potential, but big risk.
244. Bradie Ewing, FB, Wisconsin
Solid blocking fullback who is a good receiver out of the backfield. Could make it at a scarcely used position if he can play well on special teams.
245. Neiko Thorpe, FS, Auburn
Playmaking safety who became the leader of a decimated Auburn defense last season. Very athletic, instinctive playmaker. Struggles with inconsistency, but should make it as a situational player and special teamer.
246. Brandon Marshall, OLB, Nevada
Productive tackler at Nevada. Nothing spectacular about his game, but he is an instinctive player who tackles well in space. Will have to make it on special teams.
247. Rhett Ellison, TE, USC
Solid tight end who is a decent athlete and can block. Not particularly productive at USC. Will have to be able to play special teams.
248. DeAngelo Peterson, TE, LSU

251. Lance Lewis, WR, East Carolina
Productive receiver with good hands and route-running ability. Decent size and athleticism. Will have to make it on special teams.
252. Tony Jerod-Eddie, DT, Texas A&M
Intriguing size and athleticism, but an inconsistent player. May not be disruptive enough to make an impact at next level.
253. Max Holloway, DE, Boston College
Very surprising junior declaration, but Holloway is a solid defensive end. Good pass-rusher and solid against the run. Game does not stand out, but could make it as a rotational player.
254. Lucas Nix, G, Pittsburgh
Solid technician at guard, but has poor feet. Could make it as a three-position backup at both guard spots, as well as center.
255. Trent Hunter, FS, Texas A&M
Solid free safety who has good ball skills and tackles well. Subpar speed and not particularly strong. Not likely to be anything more than a special-teams player.
256. Eddie Pleasant, SS, Oregon
Solid run-support safety with good instincts. Lacks the coverage skills to play the position full-time at the next level. Will have to make it on special teams.
257. Charles Mitchell, SS, Mississippi State
Hard-hitting, sound-tackling safety. Good in run support, but struggles in pass coverage and has subpar speed. Not likely to be anything more than a special-teams player.
258. Brandon Bolden, RB, Mississippi
Running back with some shiftiness and ability to run between the tackles, willing blocker and solid receiver out of the backfield. Did not have great productivity in college; nothing too special about his game. Will have to be able to play special teams.
259. LaVon Brazill, WR, Ohio
Smaller receiver with good speed, but not great quickness. Good hands. Solid game overall, but will have to be able to play special teams.
260. Tydreke Powell, DT, North Carolina
Solid defensive tackle who was overshadowed by more prominent defensive linemen at North Carolina. Inconsistent player, but powerful and strong. Not particularly athletic.
261. Corey Mosley, FS, Virginia
Solid all-around safety at Virginia, but short for the position and not a major playmaker. Will have to make it on special teams.
262. Rokevious Watkins, G, South Carolina
Powerful offensive lineman with solid footwork. Not dominant, but has versatility to play backup at both guard and tackle.
263. Cody Johnson, FB, Texas
Big, powerful runner with deceptive speed. Has potential as a goal-line and short-yardage fullback, but must improve as a lead blocker.
264. Adonis Thomas, RB, Toledo
Solid running back who runs hard and has lateral quickness. Not tremendously productive in MAC and will have to make it on special teams in NFL.
265. Michael Smith, RB, Utah State
Backup running back at Utah State, but really emerged late in his senior season. Small back, but is a very good athlete who runs hard. A project with potential.
266. Chris Galippo, ILB, USC
Showed glimpses of great talent, but could not hold down a consistent starting spot in the USC lineup, making it unlikely he will be much more than a special-teams player at next level.
267. Jerico Nelson, SS, Arkansas
Short for a strong safety, but an instinctive player with a knack for making plays. Very good tackler, good athlete and good ball skills. Will most likely only be an asset on special teams.
Lavasier Tuinei, WR, Oregon
268. Lavasier Tuinei, WR, Oregon
Great size and hands and good verticality. Lacks speed, but could make for a solid red-zone threat. Capable blocker who could project to tight end if he adds bulk.
269. Manny Abreu, OLB, Rutgers
Has shown flashes of pass-rushing talent, but never became consistently productive as he was expected to. Will have to make it on special teams.
270. Quentin Saulsberry, C, Mississippi State
Solid center, but nothing special about his game in any area. Could be a solid backup at the position.
271. Jaymes Brooks, G, Virginia Tech
Solid collegiate guard, but nothing stands out about his game. Could make it as a backup offensive lineman.
272. Andrew Sweat, OLB, Ohio State
Sweat was a leader on the Ohio State defense, but does not have the size or natural athleticism of a prototypical NFL outside linebacker. Solid tackler, but best suited to play special teams at the next level.
273. Christian Thompson, FS, South Carolina State
Playmaker at FCS level who has good combination of size and athleticism. Good hitter, but needs work in pass coverage. Most likely to contribute on special teams.
274. Derek Moye, WR, Penn State
Moye was never a standout at Penn State, but he has a good combination of size and athleticism. Solid route-runner with good hands. Will have to contribute on special teams.
275. G.J. Kinne, QB, Tulsa
Inconsistent quarterback who struggles with downfield accuracy. Passing yards were mostly a product of his collegiate system. Solid intangibles, but not talented enough to be more than a third-string quarterback.
276. Jeff Adams, OT, Columbia
Long, angular offensive tackle with potential. Intriguing developmental project.
277. Duke Ihenacho, SS, San Jose State
Hard-hitting safety who is very good in run support, but struggles in pass coverage and lacks speed. Will have to make it on special teams.
278. Kashif Moore, WR, Connecticut
Small wide receiver with unpolished game, but freakish athletic ability.
279. Mark Asper, G, Oregon
Unspectacular, but solid offensive-line prospect with positional versatility as a backup.
280. Taylor Thompson, TE, Southern Methodist
Converted defensive end with intriguing combination of size and athleticism. Definite project, but has the prototypical measurables of the NFL’s new breed of tight ends.
281. David Paulson, TE, Oregon
Undersized tight end with solid receiving ability. Unspectacular athlete, but could make plays in the right system.
282. Johnnie Troutman, G, Penn State
Had a surprisingly strong performance in Senior Bowl, but nothing special about his game as a guard prospect.
283. Derek Dennis, G, Temple
Has good size and feet for a guard, but was not nearly dominant in the MAC.
284. Ryan Houston, FB, North Carolina
Big, powerful runner out of the backfield. Developing as a lead blocker and receiver. Can make it if he plays well on special teams.
285. Nick Provo, TE, Syracuse
Solid tight end who can catch passes and block, but has an unspectacular overall game.
286. Miles Burris, OLB, San Diego State
Undersized outside linebacker, but solid tackler who can drop back into coverage. Projects mostly as a special-teams player at next level.
287. Ronnie Thornton, OLB, Southern Mississippi
Productive player at Southern Mississippi. Good tackler in space who can drop back into coverage. Best suited to play special teams at next level.
288. David Snow, C, Texas
Talented, but inconsistent center. Needs to become stronger and more efficient.
289. Austin Davis, QB, Southern Mississippi
Solid pocket passer, but has not demonstrated the skill set to make downfield NFL throws. More of a game manager than a playmaker as a quarterback.
290. Grant Freeman, OT, Arkansas
Converted tight end with impressive athleticism for his 6’7’’ frame. Project who must become a better technician, but has developmental upside.
291. Alex Hoffman-Ellis, OLB, Washington State
Undersized, but instinctive linebacker. Good tackler in space and a decent athlete. Productive at Washington State, but best suited to play special teams at next level.
292. Drew Butler, P, Georgia
Strong-legged punter who won the Ray Guy Award and was a unanimous All-American as a sophomore. Punting averages dipped over last two seasons, but could earn a spot with a punter-needy team.
293. Sean Cattouse, SS, California
Big strong safety who tackles well, but has a serious lack of speed. Unlikely to be able to cover receivers at next level; will have to make it on special teams.
294. Donald Stephenson, OT, Oklahoma
Tremendous athlete for a 312-pound offensive tackle. Inconsistent blocker whose game needs work, but an intriguing developmental prospect.
295. Dale Moss, WR, South Dakota State
Former basketball player who has a very intriguing combination of size and athletic ability. Athleticism displayed at his pro day gives him big upside as a developmental prospect, but has to make a big transition to next level.
296. Marc Tyler, RB, USC
Talented running back who never lived up to his potential at USC. Has character concerns and a serious lack of speed.
297. Davin Meggett, RB, Maryland
Short running back who does nothing spectacularly in regard to power or speed. Solid, but not a special back. Will have to make it on special teams.
298. Tyler Hansen, QB, Colorado
Has a quality arm and can make NFL throws, but has really struggled with accuracy and consistency. Developmental project as a quarterback.
299. Randy Bullock, K, Texas A&M
Best field-goal kicker in the draft class. Won Lou Groza Award and was a consensus first-team All-American as a senior.
300. Bryce Beall, RB, Houston
Productivity was unimpressive in his senior season, but has some ability as a quick runner and receiver out of the backfield.
